The British men colonized India thousands of years ago because of its wealth. India had one of the world’s best diamonds, spices, gold and silver, which tempted the British men to settle in India.
When the British men saw that the Indian people were fighting with each other, they took advantage of the situation and controlled India.
The Indian people realized very soon that the British men came to India to take control of the country, and not to help them. The Indians fought for their country, even though the British men won the battle.
Inspiring people like Mahatma Gandhi and Bhagat Singh and many more emphasised the importance of being strong and to not give up. Those people gave the Indian people hope that one day they will win the battle, and they will also het independent.
The British men had controlled the country for almost two hundreds of years. It seems that hard work always pays off, because after two hundreds of years struggling for the country; India became independent on the 15th august 1947.
The prime Minister of India told the country, 30 January 1948, about the assassination of Ghandi. The Indian men and women cried and grieved because of his dead, for Ghandi, one of the most influential men in the world.
Ghandi was not rich and not so good looking either. He was a very clam man who dressed very simple and lived in a simple house. He did not have an army, and did not also use guns or nuclear weapon and similar things. The weapons of truth and non-violence were his weapons. Thus, Ghandi was a very brave man; his willingness to die for his beliefs is one of the factors of the independency of India. His death was an offering for the independency.
Ghandi urged the Indians not to help the British and said that they would go on peace strikes. He was very peaceful. Ghandi walked many miles in silent, and that was because he wanted to protest against British taxes on common items, especially basic foods like rice, salt, that were needed to live. Because of his actions he went to Jail several times, but he continued to struggle for his believes.
The natural resources are land and water. Fifty four percent of the land area is arable, and the groundwater resources are fairly large enough that it is important. The Gangetic Plain is one of India’s most rich regions. Most of India’s wheat and rice are grown here.
The black and read soils of Deccan Plateau (A large plateau in India) are also flourishing. The groundwater resources of the Deccan are considerable but difficult to reach.
Forests are another natural resource for India. 21, 6 percent of the area is covered with woodlands. India has varied climate and the country produce many different forests.
India is the birthplace of many of the world's religions. Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism is one of the many religions in India. India also has many places of worship and holy sites of Islam, Christianity and the Jewish faith. India is a land where people of different religions and cultures are free to live in harmony. When in India, you can travel to the holy cities of the different religions and cultures of India. You can witness the celebrations of various festivals in India, where people of different faiths come together in communal harmony. The message of love and brotherhood is expressed by all the religions and cultures of India, which is not so common.
Tribes of India
Many tribes of India are concentrated near the forested areas in country. One of the biggest tribes in India include the Bhils, the Gonds, Khasi, Mishing, Santal, Thakar, Nagas, Mizo and numerous tribes.
Several of the Indian tribes are considered as one of the oldest inhabitants on earth. In fact, according to a few researchers some of the tribes of India actually hold the key to human evolution.
The GNP of India is very low, therefore the country is considered as a developing country. About half of the population have a low income and they find it very difficult to survive, because one fifth of the population are unemployed, the industries are developing though.
The economy is getting better since the Indians’ learn to use the natural resources in a better way. All cows in the country also contribute to the economy. They contribute with milk, fuel (droppings) and traction force. A growing source of income is tourism. India is famous for spicy food, movies and beautiful nature. There are many beautiful monuments and the country attracts more tourists every year.
2, 6 million or more people in India have HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). The majority of people who have HIV live in six states in India: Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and Karnataka in the south, Maharashtra in the west, Manipur and Nagaland in the northeast.
India has a population of one billion, and around half of the adults is sexually active. The first AIDS case in India was detected in 1986; since then HIV infection has been reported in all states and union territories.
India’s growing population is like a coin with two opposite faces, which means that the population is growing very fast. I think that the population is too large, because many of the people are to poor. Responsibilities will increase and the unemployment will also increase.
On one hand a large population gives a large of educated, but on the other hand I think it would be much better if the population was not large. Now twenty percent of the population live below the poverty line, and the important thing is that something must be done.
The dead rate and birth rate is not equal. The death rate is much higher. One advantage of the growing population is that the high birth rate prevents the death rate, so maybe in the future the both rates will be very equal. It has been very interesting to explore of India, There are many things that I’ve learnt.
I did not know that that twenty percent of the population live below the poverty line, that was something new. As I said before, this was very interesting country and will maybe travel to India if I get that opportunity.
